There are three user roles in Single Origin: Admin, Builder and Consumer.


An Admin has permission to manage other users, in addition to all functionality of a Builder. In addition, admins can

  • set up Single Origin connectors
  • run lineage imports
  • create query collections
  • audit and import collections

Only a few users should be Admins.

AddInvite users to join Single Origin
UpdateUpdate a user's information and role
DeactivateDisable a user's login - can be reactivated at any time


A Builder can interactively define and publish entities inside Single Origin, in addition to all functionality of a Consumer. A Builder has the domain knowledge and obligation to ensure definitions are defined with the highest quality for the organization's official use. Only a limited number of users should be Builders.


A Consumer can search the catalog and query entities. The majority of users should be Consumers.
